Nicole Wallace's Desperate Spinning in 2008

Nicole Wallace's Desperate Spinning in 2008 March 10, 2012

Tonight HBO is airing the movie Game Change, which is based on the book with the same name and tells the story of Sarah Palin’s selection as John McCain’s 2008 running mate in his campaign for president. Spoiler alert, at the film’s conclusion, Nicole Wallace, the McCain 2008 campaign aid charged with managing Sarah Palin, opts not to vote rather than to cast a vote for Sarah Palin to be Vice President. She talked about her real life decision not to vote for Palin in an interview the other night with Lawrence O’Donnell about the campaign and the new film. (Also in that interview the screenwriter discusses double checking the veracity of the book’s claims with 25 of the key campaign sources whose remarks it was based on and reports that 24 of them said the book is true.)

So, with Wallace’s judgment that Palin was unfit to be Vice President in mind, let’s use our way back machine and see what she was telling America at the time. See if you notice any clues to what she really thinks.

Then, a week before the election:
